    New on here, so hope I'm posting this in the right section....

    I have an Atmos Multi 24/80+, which has performed brilliantly since it was installed 14 years ago. One issue - the local company who has serviced it in the past no longer covers Atmos, and I've drawn a blank on finding someone who will. Seems Atmos Multi boilers are almost extinct, and service agents are like hens teeth.

    I'm at the top of Suffolk, so I would be happy to talk to anyone in East Anglia who might be able to service this, if even if it means paying to cover someone to travel out of their area.

    Could anyone suggest a engineer who might be able to help?

    Thanks!

    Hmm that's a shame, had someone for you if you were at the West end but he lives in Henlow so think you'll be a bit far away. Spares are probably going to be hard to come by for your boiler now too unfortunately. They were imported by a small builders merchant in Northamptonshire, but I'm not sure whether the chap involved with that is still there

    Atmos are very niche, I've only come across their version of the Intergas boilers.
    There's nothing particularly special about the Multi apart from unfamiliarity that will turn many boiler techs away.

    I'd phone Atmos and check spares availiabilty...especially service items like the burner seal etc..

    https://www.atmos.co.uk/current-price-atmos-price-list/

    and check whether this list is current

    https://www.atmos.co.uk/find-an-installer/

    TBS appear to list the spares if Atmos don't deal direct, although some parts are extortionate.

    Thanks very much, appreciate the help.

    I know spares were still available relatively recently, but it's functioning well and has had new board, motorised valve, gas valve, couple of sensors and some ancillary stuff within the last 5 years, so so fingers crossed won't need spares? I'm especially wanting to get it done as I'm hoping to move, and I want to get it serviced and leave a engineer contact with new owners. I don't want to say nothing and leave them to find out there's no support in the event of a problem.

    If there is anything further to offer I'd be very glad to hear it - thankyou!

    Have now checked with TBS and spares still available, at the moment.

    It's absolutely essential that modern boilers have their burner gaskets replaced at regular intervals...failure often writes off the boiler as 1000 degree combustion gasses leaking inside cooks everything.
    For most models a 5 year interval is the most you'd want to leave it.
    Failure to regularly clean out the condensate trap and heat exchanger is also asking for trouble.

    Hi chaps, I’ve just moved into a flat with the atmos. I ve got to say this is the most confusing unit. I can’t see it in the manual, how do you turn down the water temperature?
